  • Rosa, really

    I ended up at the top of Mount Tantalus, overlooking Honolulu.I looked out at the city for a while, saw the line of surf where waves broke against the shore, planeloads of tourists landing and taking off from Honolulu International, the steady traffic of tiny cars along the ribbon of the H1, the highway the federal government requires us to call an interstate I guess subconsciously I d hoped that coming up there would allow me to put all my troubles into perspective, see myself as just one I end [...]

    We rejoin Kimo as he is moving to a new office since the last book and being reinstated as a police officer Yet his boss would like him to keep this secret and go undercover into the northern surfing towns to help solve the murders of a couple of surfers As an ex semi professional surfer, Kimo is the best fit, but after coming out and airing all his secrets in the last book, lying to family and friends is not high on his priority list.Reality and a sense of duty convince him to do it however, We [...]

    I read this book, not because of the gay theme, but because I am reading a mystery set in every state in the Union, by an author whose work I haven t read before I got to Hawaii and, because I d read some of his posts on an online mystery discussion group, decided to try one of Neil Plakcy s MAHU series Mahu is a, not necessarily complimentary, Hawaiian term for homosexual.When the book opens, the protagonist, Detective Kimo Kanapa aka, is reporting for duty at his new assignment within the I re [...]
